If liberals had to endure what conservatives do on campus, or off of it, they would be screaming “witch hunt” so loudly you would think that we were all back in Salem.
Susan Dench, founder and president of the Informed Women’s Network, was named by the governor to the University of Maine’s board of regents. “I have the perfect background,” she told the audience at the Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) “Women Lead” summit meeting on June 4, 2015. “I have a background in business and they are in financial difficulty.”
But first she had to get past the state assembly. She could not make it through a committee vote because Democrats on the panel were asking her such questions as, “Why do you have a picture of Allen West on your Twitter page?”
“He’s a war hero,” she told them. Moreover, “this committee asked me to recant everything I’ve said or written [on that page],” she recalled at the IWF meeting at the American Institute of Architects, the other AIA. The IWF symposium was sponsored by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Dench had another encounter that might explain the success of the political Left. She remembered, “A Democratic operative walked up to me once and said, ‘You know what the difference is between us? You have all the facts but we have all the emotions.’ That about sums it up.”
